[dm-devel] [Kernel PATCH] emit change on devmapper devices



Hi guys,

I've had this patch sitting on my disk for a few months, and haven't
done anything more than test it.  Before I stuff it into git, and send
it to the kernel, would you guys have a look over it and see whether
it's technically correct.

The patch simply causes a kobject "change" event to be emitted on
devmapper block devices when they are renamed.
